Nation Service Malaya

I have just discovered that my dad did his national service in Malaya.
My dad is now in his last days and revealed to my 2 brothers that he was out in Malaya. I knew he had done national service but understood that he never left these shores. Unfortunately the opertunity to ask him has passed .
He never told my mum anything and we now realise it must have affected him so badly and joining the dots together it would account For him having a breakdown some 15 years later.
I am unable to get his army number from him now but would dearly love to find out about his service and possibly what happened to him as he was returned to the UK after 4 months after deployment.
I’m sure he was with the RAOSC?
Anyone point me in the right direction
